I think I'll leave that to you Neil, I'm happy with towers for the offshore operations or maybe onshore operations but my attention is turning to the use of fibre optics in cars as per my post here

You have just hit 4000 posts mick...you need to get over to POTD :-D

And the jigsaw is complete

Smulders is an international steel construction company with more than 1,000 employees working across different locations in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Poland.

This is their site on the Tyne, and the structures are "jackets" for Offshore Wind Turbines.
https://www.smulders.com/en/smulders-projects-uk
"In 2019, we started with the production and assembly of the 55 jackets for the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm. The jackets will be assembled in Newcastle and from there, transported to the final destination."

A local one 'roung here has a defiberillerr....... heart restarter in it.
That's become very common around here too :D And it's an excellent use for them...

One saved a good friend of mine a couple of years ago when he suffered a cardiac arrest whilst running...

I'm fully trained in their use...
Brilliant , tells us I want to know I've got a rough idea how to use them how was your experience what did you do ? ( if you don't mind me asking)

Luckily the person who suffered the arrest was running just in front of a doctor and several nurses during a parkrun, a special to celebrate 70 year of the NHS ironically...

They took over and started CPR as soon as they knew the situation and we rushed the defib on foot as fast as possible from the finish line to the site of the incident, about a K...

The CPR (vitally important) and the defib. did the trick and by the time he was in the air ambulance he stated to regain consciousness and asked if anyone had paused his Garmin (GPS running watch) :lol:

Within a few months he was back to gentle running again and since then he's completed several half marathons...

Had it not been for the defib it's unlikely he'd have survived...

Weeks later I downloaded the data the defib to pass to the manufacturer. From that data I could see just how bad his heart was wobbling due to ventricular fibrillation and how it took two full 'jolts' to bring the rhythm back to normal...

All parkrun events must have either their own defib. or very rapid access to one...

As a parkrun core team member I keep my defib. training up to date... We practice on 'Resusci-Anne' dolls with training defibs. that do all except the actual jolt...

They really do save lives but the real life-saver is to begin CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) as soon as you know the victim is into cardiac arrest...

Learn how to do it, it may just save a life one day...

It was a cabriolet of some generation, and was up for sale or an old sale listing, and I think it had an oldish UK plate on it "W" reg or something. Not a TT but somehow from stumbling across it last night, to this morning, I can't find it again, and google image search doesn't come up with the goods.

It was a long, reasonably nice looking thing maybe something along these lines but a deeper shade of yellow.

I'll have to put out a Trivia Investigation Team post to find it. :-D

Much appreciated, and much like you Mick, I just can't find it again. I was going to add the rear seat view.

I will have a ponder and see if I can retrace my steps :-D I suspect its an expired sales listing.

Can't you just go into your browser's history tab for yesterday and have a trawl through for it ? It can be a laborious process, but it'll be there somewhere :)

I'm sure google have it in their vaults somewhere but history gets wiped every time I close the browser.

Still cant find it but fairly sure it was one of the "Audi Cabriolets" from the 1991-2000 vintage

Well I've found a Left hand drive one with a similar interior, an expired sale on "Theparking.eu" but one residual image is on the search results but disappears when you go to the listing. It is described as an Audi 80 Cabriolet 1.8 (1997) on that listing

This was the search that produced the answer, just noticed the little yellow steering wheel peeping over the dash on
Volkswizard.co.uk pic of the Audi 80 2.8 Cabriolet.
&quot;yellow Audi 80 car seats&quot;<br />produced the goods!
"yellow Audi 80 car seats"
produced the goods!
